Schey’s Tribology in Metalworking: Friction, Lubrication, and Wear
Schey’s Tribology in Metalworking: Friction, Lubrication, and Wear is an essential resource for the development and optimization of metalworking and material removal processes. The first half of the book covers the fundamentals of deformation and machining processes with chapters on surface and friction phenomena, the causes and effects of wear, lubrication theory and practice, metalworking lubricants and coatings, and related measurement methods. The remaining chapters describe specific processes, including rolling, drawing, extrusion, forging, sheet metal forming, and cutting and grinding, explaining how tooling materials, lubricating mechanisms, and friction influence power requirements, material flow or fracture, and surface finish in iron- and nickel-base alloys, stainless steels, magnesium and beryllium alloys, refractory metals, titanium, and zirconium. Detailed explanations and illustrations are provided throughout along with equations, data tables, and curves. The book also includes chapter summaries and extensive references.
